Kuchar extends lead at Sony Open

The PGA Tour only began keeping hole-by-hole records in 1983, and no one had ever made three eagles in one round on par 4s since then.

Kuchar has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae Country Club, and his 18-under 192 was the lowest 54-hole score of his career.

"It was so uncharacteristic of me", Kuchar said, referring to his three-putt and bad wedge on No. 5.

It was a hard day for 11-time PGA Tour champion Spieth, who had four bogeys and just one birdie to be tied for 127th and 12 shots off the pace.

"I anticipate needing another good score tomorrow, " Kuchar said.

Kuchar ended a almost five-year drought when he won the Mayakoba Classic in November, his eighth PGA Tour win, and he said it was a good recent experience to have in the memory bank.

Kuchar is 2-2 when he has the 54-hole lead going into the final round.

Gartner: PC market continues to decline
Apple shipments declined 3.8 percent to 4.920, though its market share went slightly higher to 7.2 percent form 7.1 percent. There is some good news for Lenovo who managed to beat HP to the number one spot by acquiring 24.2% of the market.


Kuchar is one shot clear of Putnam, who fired a five-under 65 and four strokes ahead of Stewart Cink and Chez Reavie, who shot 62 and 65 respectively in the Tour's first full-field event of 2019.

"It was awfully steady and bogey free".

He never looks to be under stress, though Kuchar says looks can be deceiving.

The only other time Kuchar won twice in the same season was in 2013, when he won the Match Play Championship in Arizona in February and the Memorial in early June.

Kuchar added birdies at 10, 12, 15, 16 and the par-five 18th to seal the win as Putnam, who was tied for the lead after a birdie at 13, bogeyed 14 from a bunker on the way to a two-under 68 for solo second on 262. But, Kuchar closed out the front nine with two birdies in the pair's last three holes. "To win two out of three is insane to comprehend".

He'll be very comfortable over the next few weeks, remaining in Hawaii with his family for a two-week vacation. His 64-65 weekend gave him a tie for seventh, and he now heads off to Singapore with hopes of earning a spot in the British Open. Instead, it turned into the American's first top-10 finish since the 2017 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and his best result since winning the Desert Classic nearly exactly two years ago. "That was fun. I felt like I was trying to win a golf tournament just to make the cut, which is not really something I want to get used to, but early in the season when I started the day 17 shots back, it was something where I could actually feel some pressure and make adjustments, too".
